What happens if suddenly people get out? And then more people get out?

The wall of worry.

Yeah, I get that. When I said (in jest) that the market will drop 5% sooner than it will drop 25%...I meant to convey that predicting a large drop in the market, without a fairly specific date isn't too useful. You can predict a large drop every week, every month, etc and be very wrong for a long time, then when the big drop happens (and it will eventually) declare how right you are. Without a time component, it is a silly prediction, IMHO.
